    Hello from the suburbs of Akron Ohio :) We are first time chicken owners, well, this is actually the first time we've been owned by chickens! Bought 5 chickens last month for our granddaughters to help raise....so far, so good :)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. Our children and granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loved our chickens and made lap pets of the calmer and more gentle breeds. X2 on Allears; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    It sounds like you are enjoying your flock. Raising poultry with kids is rewarding...everyone, including the birds, gets something out of it.

    Nice to have you here!
